On Wednesday, March 10, 2021, the Victor Central School District Board of Education appointed Amanda Moon as the new Assistant Principal for the Primary School effective April 12, 2021.

Special thanks to retired VPS teacher Tim DiSanto who filled the leadership post during this transition.

"I am thrilled to be joining the VPS family! Victor Primary seems like a really special place to work, and I feel very fortunate for this opportunity. I am eager to meet the students, staff, and families soon!” Moon said.
